Diamonds of War

Beautiful stones. Ugly business.

Diamonds stand for timeless elegance, and often, love and commitment. But they also can represent ruined and lost lives on the other side of the world.

Diamonds of war are the precious stones rebel and terrorist movements use to finance their activities.  Go behind the curtain with PARTISAN PICTURES and journalist Dominic Cunningham-Reid as we track the dangerous trail of a diamond…from its discovery in central Africa, to the gem markets of Antwerp, and finally to customers in New York City, where distant war is the last thing on consumers’ minds.
